It has come to our attention that the Victorian Consumer Affairs Minister
Michael O'Brien has singled out our organisation as well as a few others for
investigation by the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) for
an alleged suspicion that we may have been involved in ‘secondary boycotts’
against Israeli-owned businesses in Australia.

This claim is dangerous and is indicative of the usual hysteria we face
every time we highlight Israel’s violations of human rights in this country.
